Wacky mocumentary about sex addiction
28 April 2017 | by (Hanoi, Vietnam) – See all my reviews

This is a crazy movie. It starts out reasonably believable and serious as the female grad student follows a sex-crazed addict named Rex around interviewing him and documenting his life. Despite being a fairly despicable individual, Rex is charismatic and has a pretty quick wit. It's entertaining to get to know Rex through the movie, and you almost do wonder if it's real. But about mid-way through, it seems like they gave up on maintaining the air of seriousness and things just get crazier and crazier, but not as entertaining because it gets fairly juvenile and goofy. I did enjoy the first part but the second phase was more or less a waste of time.
